Holiday in the Fourth Republic

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I made the Pandan syrup especially for these 2 drinks tonight. The aroma of Pandan is quite intoxicating to the senses, with smells of vanilla, but at the same time, had a nutty smell, similar to Basmati Rice. It’s a green, leafy, sort of grassy taste, but not really comparable to anything else. Don’t be fooled though. Pandan Syrup tastes nothing like vanilla. Pandan is used in Asian countries, often paired with coconut. This drink, and the following one, are definitely worth sourcing the Pandan leaves for. They are generally available in most Asian stores.

  • 22.5ml Cognac
  • 22.5ml aged Jamaican Rum- Appleton Signature
  • 22.5ml Mezcal
  • 15ml Pandan Syrup
  • 15ml Lime Juice
  • 15ml Lemon Juice
  • 45ml Pineapple Juice
  • 15ml Coconut Cream

    Flash blend with a spindle mixer, or shake with crushed ice.

    Garnish with pineapple fronds (again Pandan leaves for me) and orange rosettes.
